I Heart Canada: This Is, After All, the Canadian Gift Guide

What It Is: A collection of vintage maps hand-stitched with a lovely little yarn heart by Canuck shop Sadie & June. Use it to highlight ‘home is where the heart is’, a place you fell in love, got married, or simply adored visiting. While I’ve highlighted the Canadian versions above – which include national, provincial, city, and even specialty maps for things like provincial parks – you can also get these little pieces of artwork for the U.S., internationally, or a custom order. They also have options for two hearts if you want to show where you’ve moved or commemorate a long-distance relationship that made it. Want a different motif than a heart? There are also ‘Word Art’ maps that feature classic measures like Explore or Wanderlust. Too cute!

Who It’s For: Your one true love for your one-year (paper) anniversary). Your child that’s moved away for college or other purposes. The newlyweds, to celebrate where they tied the knot.

What It Costs: Prices range but most start at the $20 mark for a 4 x 6 design.

Where It’s At: Shop Sadie & June online here.
